Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Set of Bar Clamps

We really didn’t fool anyone last week.  It was pretty obvious to most of you that the Toolsday mystery gadget was an old knitting machine used to make socks.  We randomly picked one winner from all the comments, and that lucky person is Rhonda B. who knew exactly what it was.  Congrats Rhonda B., you have one week to reply to our email before we pick another winner.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a set of Irwin Bar Clamps. These are great for DIYers and crafters. The easy-squeeze, one-handed grip makes these clamps easy to use, and they exert up to 150 pounds of pressure to hold most anything together. The cushy inner pads means even with all that pressure, whatever you’re clamping won’t get marked or dented.  

Do you love pampering your pet? Baking treats for your furry friends? Buying them fun toys and chews?  So do we, that’s why we compiled some of the best dog and cat treat recipes, lists of the best pet toys, cat condos and doghouse designs. Also, we’ve got ideas and instructions on how to turn old furniture into dog beds.  

To enter the Irwin Bar Clamps giveaway, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this green gadget is used for and who specifically uses it? You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one comment from this post.

On Tuesday, March 19, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until March 19, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Irwin Bar Clamps.
